The Pigeons felt the wrath of the Tigers in the first half before showing resistance in the second half. The Pigeons showed glimpses of their best form, interwoven with turnovers and skill errors.
Albury burst out of the blocks kicking the first seven goals of the game, despite Michael Handby winning valuable clearances and young gun Brady Pritchard competing hard in the contests.
The Pigeons kicked their first goal through Beau Seymour in time on and then Jeremy O’Brien added another after a downfield free kick. Albury kicked the final goal with 24 seconds left in the quarter and led at the first break by 41 points.
The second term saw Pritchard move to Victoria Country and Ovens and Murray representative Lonnie Hampton; and he defeated the highly credential Tiger in multiple contests including matching him for pace and running him down to win the ball for the Pigeons.
However Albury again hit the scoreboard hard kicking six goals to two to lead by 63 points at half time and looked like continuing their 100 plus point winning margins.
Ed Bayles and Matt Grinter kicked the only Pigeon goals; with Craig Ednie, Pritchard, Handby and Tyler Bonat giving great efforts.
The third term was a turning point for the Pigeons and although Albury received the first free kick for the term; it was the Pigeons who attacked the scoreboard first with Brad O’Connor kicking two goals in two minutes to reward the Pigeons early dominance of the play.
Rick Barnes was taking strong marks and Drew Barnes was providing an inspirational lift with several strong efforts.
Albury through the O’hAilpin brothers kicked multiple goals, before Brendan Fevola kicked his only goal and then Drew Barnes kicked a brilliant goal.
